Dental Emergencies

Home » Dental Emergencies

True dental emergencies can be scary and overwhelming for anyone experiencing the sharp or nagging pain of a tooth ache. The key is to remain calm and determine the correct steps to take.

The most common causes of tooth pain are:

  • debris trapped under the gum
  • a lost filling or crown
  • a cracked or broken tooth
  • an infection

We can help

A limited exam and x-ray can quickly determine the problem and the appropriate treatment necessary to relieve pain and fix the cause. This may include a prescription for an antibiotic or an over-the-counter medication to help alleviate pain until the restorative procedure is scheduled.

Give us a call at (207) 782-5308 and we will do our best to work you in, but please be aware that our current patients of record are given priority for the first available emergency appointments.
